When Facial Recognition Is a Bust

We all remember the statue disaster regarding soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo that was unveiled back in 2017 that was a legitimate global news story.

The comical bust that can be seen above, which was created by Emanuel Santos for a ceremony that honored the soccer star by renaming the Madeira Airport to Madeira Cristiano Ronaldo Airport in Portugal, was eventually replaced last summer. In the same spirit, ‘Late Late Show’ host James Corden decided to pull a prank just a couple of days ago along these same hilariously exaggerated (jaw) lines.

The target: James Corden’s friend and fellow Brit, David Beckham.

After Bayern Munich was eliminated from Champions League during the team’s return leg against Liverpool, which is something I am still processing, I needed to laugh.

This did the trick.
